Affiliates: FAQ


How much does it cost to join an affiliate program?
There is no charge for joining an affiliate program, there are no monthly charges and no minimum sales requirements.  
How much money you can make as an affiliate marketer?
“Limitless”. There are affiliate marketers who are making millions of dollars a month. There is no limit to how much you can earn, you can earn as much as you can deliver with our affiliate program. There is no cap on what you can earn each month. 
What qualifications do I need to become an affiliate marketer?
There is literally no qualification required to become an affiliate marketer, though having good copy-writing skills and marketing skills will be an added advantage.
Is affiliate marketing harmful or illegal? 
No, it is neither harmful nor illegal, as you will simply be using the affiliate link provided to you rather than a direct link to link to any site.
I don't have a blog or website, can I still participate in the Affiliate Program?
Yes. You can still share your affiliate link via e-mail or on sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.
I operate multiple websites, can I still participate in the Affiliate Program?
Yes. You're welcome to promote Trendy21Store across all of your websites. The more links and banners you place on your websites, the more qualified leads you’re likely to send us and this should translate into a higher conversion.   
 
Is my blog or website eligible for the Affiliate Program? 
Most blogs and websites qualify to participate in the Affiliate Program, but we reserve the right to refuse membership or revoke your membership at any time if we determine that your website contains objectionable material, such as defamatory content, pornography or other content of an adult nature.  
Are sites outside of the U.S. eligible for the Affiliate Program?
Yes, you may join the affiliate program as long as you have a verified PayPal account. 
Can I receive commissions for my own purchase? 
You cannot receive commissions for your own purchases. Although our system will initially count this kind of commission, we check every commission and will void any that are for your own purchases.   
How high is your commission rate? 
Each new affiliate will start with a 20% commission rate.
Can my commission rate ever go down? 
No, your rate will never go down, regardless of sales volume.
  
I earned a commission, why haven't I been paid?   
Each month, we pay affiliates who have reached our minimum $20 account balance. If your account balance hasn't met the payout guideline of $20, it will carry over from month-to-month until it does. The first month it hits the $20 balance mark, you will be paid.  
How do I track my earnings? 
You can login at any time for access to real-time reports and get up-to-the-minute information about any commissions you’ve earned. 
When will I receive my affiliate commissions? 
We approve commissions after the sale occurs.
Affiliate payments are processed and sent directly to your PayPal account around the 1st of each month. While we usually process all payments on the 1st day of the month, we don't guarantee payments will be posted by the 1st. We hold payments for a full 30 days to allow for processing, charge-backs, etc. For example, you would receive an affiliate payment for the full month of May by June 1st.  
I do not have a PayPal account - can I become an affiliate anyway?
In order to keep transaction costs low, we require affiliates to have a PayPal account - other payment methods are currently not supported, but we are working on that.
What if my affiliate payment is blocked, rejected or unclaimed? 
On occasion affiliate payments are blocked or rejected by PayPal or are listed as unclaimed. Usually this is because PayPal does not do business in your country or the email address associated with the affiliate account is incorrect. As an affiliate it is your responsibility to make sure your email address is valid and is able to receive payments from PayPal. We will not re-send any any payments after 30 days from the original payment processing date! Any payments unclaimed over 30 days are forfeited.  
Cookie policy
Many of the affiliate product offer certain number of days cookie period, which means that if a visitor clicks your affiliate link to land on an affiliate product, now even if they don’t buy anything immediately, but re-visit the site in next 30 days, you will earn an affiliate commission. We offer 30 days cookie policy.
Can I change the text of the banners? 
Yes, if you would like to change the text of the banners, pictures or other promo material please download files at your referral account.
Make the desired changes (like translations) and send the updated images to affiliates@trendy21store.com and we will add them to the marketing material section.
